BILLY RAY CYRUS PORTRAYS 'SURREAL' WEED NUGGET IN 'COUNTRY ROCK' "ANGEL IN MY POCKET" ANIMATION

Always a visionary for his craft, Billy Ray Cyrus recruits Potsy Ponciroli of Hideout Pictures and Mikey Peterson of Nug Nation for a stop-motion animated video for "Angel in my Pocket," included on Cyrus' new studio album, The SnakeDoctor Circus, available NOW!

Cyrus co-wrote the "droning, blues-based" (Rolling Stone Country) and "country rock" (Billboard) track with Don Von Tress, who also penned Cyrus' smash "Achy Breaky Heart."

In the animation, Cyrus "portrays a sleepy-eyed mini-mart worker who is always under fire from his not-cool boss...it’s a surreal video, with Doobie Ray Cyrus running afoul of his boss (also a bud) at the convenience store where he works and hitting the road" (Rolling Stone Country).

The long-planned release of Billy Ray Cyrus' new studio album, The SnakeDoctor Circus, is available for pre-order now from BMG. Fans will receive three tracks upon pre-ordering, including "Guns, Gold & Guitars," "Goddess of Democracy" and "Angel in my Pocket"

About Billy Ray Cyrus: Billy Ray Cyrus became a household name over the course of his unprecedented career which spans across music, television and theater. Throughout his nearly three decade career, Cyrus has achieved worldwide success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The Flatwoods, KY native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave All, debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, "Achy Breaky Heart," became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum. After "Achy Breaky Heart," Cyrus followed up with back to back hits “It Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher'm I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” and the anthemic “Some Gave All.” Cyrus knocked himself out of the top Billboard position with the his second No. 1 album, It Won’t Be The Last, featuring smash hits “In the Heart of a Woman,” “Words By Heart” and “Somebody New.” Cyrus followed up with dozens more that defined country music. “To me, my most defining moment in country was being joined by George Jones and Loretta Lynn on my self-penned ‘Country Music Has the Blues,’” said Cyrus. He also enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley Cyrus.

ABOUT BELLAMY BROTHERS Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating more than 40 years of success. The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich and The Judds. “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” originally scrawled on a dinner napkin by David, rocketed them to the top of the country charts the way “Let Your Love Flow,” had done in the pop market just a few years earlier. It proved to be the first of a string of 14 No. 1 singles in the U.S. alone. They’re the only U.S. country music act who've toured in India, Sri Lanka, New Caledonia and Qatar. The Bellamy Brothers hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) and the Country Music Association Awards (CMA) for the most duo nominations. Numerous Grammy nods have also been directed toward the brothers. The Bellamys are also opening up their lives to television audiences with their new reality show, “Honky Tonk Ranch.” Each episode of “Honky Tonk Ranch” captivates viewers by the unpredictable misadventures the Bellamys face while balancing their globe-trotting touring schedule while running their sprawling family ranch in south Florida. “Honky Tonk Ranch” is executive produced by David Bellamy and directed, shot and edited by Derrek Kupish, CEO/founder of dkupish productions. “Honky Tonk Ranch” airs Sundays at 8:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. CT on The Cowboy Channel.

STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN'S DEEPER ROOTS: WHERE THE BLUEGRASS GROWS NO. 1 ON BILLBOARD BLUEGRASS ALBUMS CHART

Five-time GRAMMY®-winner Steven Curtis Chapman's new album Deeper Roots: Where The Bluegrass Grows returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart following its chart-topping release week debut. Chapman also reached a new career milestone with Deeper Roots as the 13-track collection also landed at No. 1 on the iTunes Country Albums chart.

"What an amazing thing. I'm just very blessed. I mean, that's the bottom line. I'm just very, very blessed and so grateful for all of the success, all the opportunities I've had. To be able, at this point in my life, to do something that I've never done before and have a first, that's a pretty awesome, awesome thing," Chapman expressed to PopCulture.com.

Deeper Roots, featuring collaborations with Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts and Bluegrass Music and Country Music Hall of Famer Ricky Skaggs, follows Chapman's 2013 Billboard No. 1 Bluegrass Album Deep Roots, released exclusively with Cracker Barrel. Chapman recently performed the new album's title track, "Where The Bluegrass Grows," on "Fox & Friends." The Bluegrass Situation also exclusively premiered an acoustic video of Chapman performing the self-penned song.

"Relishing an opportunity to return to his roots, taking family and friends along for the ride (Deborah Evans Price/Billboard)," Chapman partnered with Billboard for an exclusive first listen to "'Til The Blue" featuring Gary LeVox. The heartfelt song was written by Chapman, Lori McKenna and Barry Dean. Ricky Skaggs also joined Chapman on the album to record a bluegrass version of Chapman's hit single "Dive" from the GRAMMY®-winning album Speechless. The new rendition features a "driving bluegrass beat" and "that distinctive Steven Curtis Chapman sound" (Bluegrass Today/John Lawless).

The homage to Chapman's rural Kentucky roots, which showcases the platinum-selling singer-songwriter's "effortless ease with which he segues into the bluegrass genre, picking and grinning with the best of them" (Andrew Greenhalgh/CCM Magazine), includes a mixture of familiar hymns like "Life Is Like A Mountain Railroad" and "I'll Fly Away," fan-favorite hits including "Cinderella" and brand-new songs such as "'Til The Blue" and "Where The Bluegrass Grows." Deeper Roots was produced by Chapman and Brent Milligan, engineered by Milligan and Brent King, mixed by Milligan, King and Sean Moffitt and mastered by Brad Blackwood at Euphonic Masters.

MIDLAND TAPS DENNIS QUAID AS "MR. LONELY"

Acclaimed actor and singer/songwriter, Dennis Quaid, joins GRAMMY®-nominated trio MIDLAND for his most intriguing role to date - “Mr. Lonely.” Starring in the chart-topping Texans' music video, it highlights their sense of humor and effortless vintage country style. “Mr. Lonely” marks the first release off the band's highly-anticipated second album (Big Machine Records). Earlier this month, Variety exclusively premiered a trailer showing Quaid’s Mr. Lonely getting a little roughed up encountering some of the women from his past.

As a singer/songwriter, Quaid has hundreds of thousands of miles under his belt as a touring musician and continues to receive stellar reviews displaying equal ease with both originals and country standards with his all-star band, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks.

During a recent packed crowd at Billy Bob's Texas, one reviewer noted how Quaid "delivered a memorable two-hour, 19-song set. The 64-year-old Quaid rushed onto the stage like a 20-year-old, and leapt into the crowd with his guitar during the second song to share some high fives, all without missing a note on his six string" (ILoveFTW.com).

Recently, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks celebrated Record Store Day by releasing their first-ever album, Out of the Box, on vinyl via Omnivore Records. Described by Quaid as “a junkyard of American music," the A-side includes the original title track "Out of the Box" while the B-side features a rousing cover of Larry Williams' hit "Slow Down." Recorded at the legendary Village Studios in Los Angeles, the band's debut album was released on CD and Digital last November to rave reviews.

PRE-ORDERS BEGIN FOR MUCH-ANTICIPATED BILLY RAY CYRUS ALBUM THE SNAKEDOCTOR CIRCUS

The long-planned release of Billy Ray Cyrus' new studio album, The SnakeDoctor Circus, is available for pre-order now from BMG. Fans will receive two tracks upon pre-ordering, including "Guns, Gold & Guitars" and "Goddess of Democracy."

"This record was such a passion project for me. Getting to work with Don Von Tress again was a dream come true. He has always been my musical soulmate. In the early nineties we were making music about Mother Earth, saving our planet and environment like "Trail of Tears" and so many other songs that were maybe a bit too heavy and political for that time. Now, as two old guys, we're still just writing our TRUTH and singing about the issues we are passionate about. This record is very personal to Don Von Tress and myself, but it's also meant to be a platform for the listener to interpret whatever is important to them and their beliefs. This record is a concept album and meant to be listened to in its entirety. It's a story. The last song on the record pretty much sums up, not only the album, but also my life. It's called 'I've Been Around'," said Cyrus.

Von Tress wrote the multi-platinum smash “Achy Breaky Heart” on Cyrus' record-breaking debut album Some Gave All. Cyrus penned "Some Gave All" about a Vietnam veteran in 1989 only to meet Von Tress, whom is also a Vietnam veteran, a few years later. The collaboration between the two songwriting titans more than 25 years ago continues with new music on The SnakeDoctor Circus.

The SnakeDoctor Circus Track Listing: 1. Guns, Gold & Guitars 2. The Reckoning 3. Barely Enough 4. Goddess of Democracy 5. I Think Your Time's Come 6. The Blood of the Devil 7. Angel in my Pocket 8. Take It Easy Greazy 9. I've Been Around

Cyrus recorded The SnakeDoctor Circus in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with some of the most respected musicians, including Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dewey Lyndon “Spooner” Oldham (piano), Nashville Musician's Hall of Fame Member Will McFarlane, as well as David Hood (bass guitar), Kelvin Holly (electric/acoustic/bass guitar), Bekka Bramlett (vocals, tambourine), Kimi Samson (violin, viola, piano), Caleb Elliott (cello), Will McFarlane (electric guitar), James LeBlanc (electric guitar), Mike 'Dillon' Curington (drums), John Brannen (acoustic guitar, harmonica), Shonna Tucker (bass guitar), Angela Hacker (vocals), Larry Byrom (piano), Mick Utley (piano), Johnny Monteagle (drums, baritone sax, synth) and Jimmy Nutt (acoustic/electric guitars, tambourine, percussion). Nutt, a Grammy®-winning recording engineer, also mixed The SnakeDoctor Circus.

DENNIS QUAID & THE SHARKS RELEASE OUT OF THE BOX ON VINYL

Dennis Quaid & The Sharks are celebrating Record Store Day by releasing their first-ever album, Out of the Box, on vinyl via Omnivore Records to record stores.. Described by Quaid as “a junkyard of American music," the A-side includes the original title track "Out of the Box" while the B-side features a rousing cover of Larry Williams' hit "Slow Down."

Quaid, who is not only an accomplished actor, but also an artist with hundreds of thousands of miles under his belt as a touring musician, produced the project with the Kingbees’ Jamie James. Recorded at the legendary Village Studios in Los Angeles, the band's debut album was released on CD and Digital last November to rave reviews.

Dennis Quaid & The Sharks have toured as often as Quaid's schedule has allowed over their 19-year history. Following a packed performance at Billy Bob's Texas, one reviewer noted how Quaid "rushed onto the stage like a 20-year-old, and leapt into the crowd with his guitar during the second song to share some high fives, all without missing a note on his six string (ILoveFTW.com)." On May 25, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks will open for Midland at their show in Westside Pavilion in Tuolumme, Calif. Quaid, the star of Midland's forthcoming music video for "Mr. Lonely," appeared with the Texas trio at the ACM Awards last weekend.

Music has always been important to Quaid: “As far back as I can remember, music has always been a big part of my life. My third cousin was Gene Autry, the original Western movie singing cowboy. My grandmother played piano and sang songs from the ’20s, songs from her youth. My dad played piano and crooned like Bing Crosby and looked a little like Dean Martin.”

Among Quaid’s musical heroes are Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, Willie & Waylon, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, the Doors and James Brown. With influences like those, it’s no surprise that members of the Sharks have serious musical pedigrees of their own: Jamie James led the Kingbees; Sharks members Tom Mancillas, Ken Stange and Tom Walsh have worked over the years with artists as varied as Harry Dean Stanton, Roger Miller, Tina Turner, Joe Cocker, Supertramp, Jose Feliciano and America.

BMG TO RELEASE MUCH-ANTICIPATED BILLY RAY CYRUS ALBUM THE SNAKEDOCTOR CIRCUS MAY 24

While Billy Ray Cyrus shares the No. 1 song on all music streaming platforms worldwide with the remix of Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road," Cyrus is equally excited about the release of his long-planned album, The SnakeDoctor Circus. Cyrus and BMG planned to release the concept record on May 24 long before the phenomenon of "Old Town Road."

"Life is a series of adjustments. I've been working on this album, The SnakeDoctor Circus, for more than two years now. In January this year, my label, BMG, had planned and scheduled the release of this album May 24. Twenty-seven days ago, I heard a song from Lil Nas X and felt the injustice of the way he was being treated. You just don't pull the rug out from under someone like that. He impacted a worldwide psyche and touched a universal harmony. That's when I made the adjustment in my schedule, went to the studio, wrote a new verse and sang on 'Old Town Road' with Lil Nas X," said Cyrus.

Cyrus recorded The SnakeDoctor Circus in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with some of the most respected musicians, including Cyrus’ longtime collaborator and songwriting mentor, Don Von Tress, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dewey Lyndon “Spooner” Oldham (piano), Nashville Musician's Hall of Fame Member Will McFarlane, as well as David Hood (bass guitar), Kelvin Holly (electric/acoustic/bass guitar), Bekka Bramlett (vocals, tambourine), Kimi Samson (violin, viola, piano), Caleb Elliott (cello), Will McFarlane (electric guitar), James LeBlanc (electric guitar), Mike 'Dillon' Curington (drums), John Brannen (acoustic guitar, harmonica), Shonna Tucker (bass guitar), Angela Hacker (vocals), Larry Byrom (piano), Mick Utley (piano), Johnny Monteagle (drums, baritone sax, synth) and Jimmy Nutt (acoustic/electric guitars, tambourine, percussion). Nutt, a Grammy®-winning recording engineer, also mixed The SnakeDoctor Circus.

It’s a full circle moment for Cyrus because Von Tress wrote the multi-platinum smash “Achy Breaky Heart” on Cyrus' record-breaking debut album Some Gave All. Cyrus penned "Some Gave All" about a Vietnam veteran in 1989 only to meet Von Tress, whom is also a Vietnam veteran, a few years later. The collaboration between the two songwriting titans more than 25 years ago continues with new music on The SnakeDoctor Circus.

About Billy Ray Cyrus: Billy Ray Cyrus became a household name over the course of his unprecedented career which spans across music, television and theater. Throughout his nearly three decade career, Cyrus has achieved worldwide success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The Flatwoods, KY native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave All, debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, "Achy Breaky Heart," became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum. After "Achy Breaky Heart," Cyrus followed up with back to back hits “It Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher'm I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” and the anthemic “Some Gave All.” Cyrus knocked himself out of the top Billboard position with the his second No. 1 album, It Won’t Be The Last, featuring smash hits “In the Heart of a Woman,” “Words By Heart” and “Somebody New.” Cyrus followed up with dozens more that defined country music. “To me, my most defining moment in country was being joined by George Jones and Loretta Lynn on my self-penned ‘Country Music Has the Blues,’” said Cyrus. He also enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley Cyrus.

DENNIS QUAID

Global superstar Dennis Quaid is not only an accomplished actor, but he's also a singer-songwriter with hundreds of thousands of miles under his belt as a touring musician.

Quaid, who's been playing music since his grandfather bought him his first guitar at a Texas Kmart, continues to receive stellar reviews displaying equal ease with both originals and country standards with his all-star band, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks. During a recent packed crowd at Billy Bob's Texas, one reviewer noted how Quaid "delivered a memorable two-hour, 19-song set. The 64-year-old Quaid rushed onto the stage like a 20-year-old, and leapt into the crowd with his guitar during the second song to share some high fives, all without missing a note on his six string" (ILoveFTW.com).

A relentless road warrior, Quaid's passion is writing, recording and delivering music to fans as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist. After years of playing clubs with his band, the Sharks, Quaid released his debut album, Out of the Box.

“As far back as I can remember, music has always been a big part of my life,” says Quaid. “My third cousin was Gene Autry, the original Western movie singing cowboy. My grandmother played piano and sang songs from the ’20s, songs from her youth. My dad played piano and crooned like Bing Crosby and looked a little like Dean Martin.”

Among Quaid’s musical heroes are Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, Willie & Waylon, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, the Doors and James Brown. With influences like those, it’s no surprise that members of the Sharks have serious musical pedigrees of their own: Jamie James led the Kingbees; Sharks members Tom Mancillas, Ken Stange and Tom Walsh have worked over the years with artists as varied as Harry Dean Stanton, Roger Miller, Tina Turner, Joe Cocker, Supertramp, Jose Feliciano and America.

Now, Dennis Quaid and The Sharks have released the first studio album of their 19-year history with “rock ’n’ roll and country-soul,” or as Quaid calls it, “a junkyard of American music.”
